Historical Traveler Reviews Schrute Farms Honesdale
Gives a good insight into beet production
The great thing about this place is that you can observe the whole process from planting to pickling.
The owner, whilst not overtly friendly, was very helpful and offered to sell us his crossbow. We declined (as we already have one).
I believe he may have a glass eye as I was not sure where to look.
Bed & Breakfast Meets State Fair
This B&B is certainly unique. From the 7am recorder wake up calls to the dinner conversations on how to prevent bear attacks, to the moo-faced guy constantly wearing a tie all day long. My wife mentioned the guy wearing the tie is the owner, but he seemed to be constantly staring at us as if he was expecting us to steal the plastic-ware at breakfast.
When you check in, be prepared to answer the question, "Are you the flasher?". It sounded bad, so we replied, 'no' which seemed to be the correct answer. Next, be prepared to have a metal detector wand passed over you. We were particularly confused by this since the owner kept referring to it as, "Gaydar".
We stayed in the "Irrigation" room, which under any other circumstances I would consider the boiler room. It was decorated with odd awards to the effect of, "Outstanding Citizen Awards" which sound impressive until you notice that they were probably printed on someone's printer using Clipart images.
I recommend staying here for no other reason than it's an interesting time. It's certainly one of those places you need to visit once, and you only need to visit once.
Fact: Best Beet Farm stay ever
Fact: Schrute Farms is the only 60 acre beet farm that allows guests to perfect their hunting skills on the crossbow range.
Greatly Improved Accomodations
As a returning guest to Schrute Farms, I must note the new bathrooms, which represent a notable improvement over what I can only call a quaint, yet poorly dug, outhouse, which was in use during my last visit. This upgrade notwithstanding, I was pleased to see that in lieu of the ersatz Amish quilts, ubiquitously seen in area B & Bs, guests at Schrute can still sleep in toasty comfort under layers of native pelts.
Fine...if you like going to the bathroom under the porch!!
The owners (a man named Dwight and his cousin) are a bit odd, but nothing was as odd as the only bathroom...under the porch! A little warning would be nice. On the other hand, free use of paint ball guns and potato rifles were unexpectedly fun! Just be warned, the owner thinks he is a deputy sheriff and will watch you very closely.
Trick or Treat
Looking for a different place to stay during the Autumn leaf peeping season-Try Schrute Farms B and B. The place has a rustic feel to it. Not your typical B and B. No Victorian bedrooms, no frills-reminded me of my younger days visiting my grandparent's farm. Twin Beds, large breakfast consisting of eggs (hard boiled) and bacon and milk (beets optional)-typical farm fare. Enjoyed Mose tour of beet farming and Dwight's down to earth practicallity made this an unexpected travel experience. The atmosphere tied in with Halloween (I felt I had been tricked into a romantic nonexistent atmosphere. But in the end-it turned out to be a treat) Yes, next year it'll back to Cape Cod for the foliage, but my trip to Schrute farm was something I'll never forget.
Definitely will go back!
The best beet farm I've ever stayed at! Definitely recommended!
Schrute Farms delivers!
The architecture reminds one of a quaint Tuscan beet farm, and the natural aroma of the beets drifts into the bedrooms and makes you dream of simpler times. You will never want to leave your room. The informative lecture will satisfy all your beet curiosity, and the dawn goose walk will tug at your heart strings. Table making never seemed so possible. Great story to tell your friends. Plenty of parking! The staff's attention to detail and devotion to cleanliness was limitless. From their enthusiastic welcome to the last wave good-bye, Schrute Farms delivers.
Stay away - proprietor is crazy!
I have to warn people about the proprietor of Shrute Farms - he may portray himself as a gentleman farmer, but he is not what he seems!
He killed my cat, sprinkles!!!
Who knows what he might do to you or your loved ones....

... stand properly nor put anything up to elevate my position. Due to this, I was forced to look up at my view screen during the whole show, creating a heck of a neck creak.
Once the show had completed, load out went really smoothly. We (as in the video crew) were done by 1:30am, which is a nice change from previous venues. One more show and I will have a day off in Toronto. I’m looking forward to it.
Today was the toughest day so far. Our target was to hit 50 miles which we just about got to. We climbed up through the mountains of Pensilvania, amounting to just short of 2000 feet of climbing. I never realise that many hills existed on earth, they ...
... been the cause. We decided that Tom and Sam would need to say there overnight to fix the bike and that we'd meet up with them in Niagara Falls. It was a bit gutting, especially as we'd only done 36 hours as it was already 6pm. We set off as soon as we could to try and get back on track. Luckily it was fairly flat and we hit 50 miles by 7.30pm. There was a guy ploughing a field near a stream so we asked if it would be ok to pitch up ...
Stopped for lunch at a Rt 84 Country store high on a hill. Saw some unique items. Lake Wallenpaupack is close by but no time for tubing!! LJ
I played packman for free and saw a cool 8N tractor and a huge teepee. RJ
There was plenty of interesting things to examine, making it a well worthwhile visit for lunch. PJ Onward to New York ...
things have got a lot busier these days. my timetable changed this session, so now i have minor 1 off, and i work in leather minor 2, so mornings are chilled. major 3 i have 17 kids in woodshop - more than in the minors - too many kids to be safe or make any decent projects.
i had a day off on the 2nd july, and what thew camp set up was going to the mall, which cost $20 for the coach - i didn't want to pay to go shopping when i don't need to buy anything. instead ...
